The search for the remains of a missing 13-month-old Wyoming boy got underway Tuesday at a Colorado landfill.

Gesell says the search may take weeks. It will address an area 25 yards wide and 100 yards long where the trash is about 15-feet deep.

Twenty-three-year-old Logan Hunter Rogers of Cheyenne is charged with involuntary manslaughter and child endangering with a controlled substance in the death of Silas Anthony Ojeda of Cheyenne.

Investigators say Rogers told them the boy died after falling off a counter and that Rogers put his body in a trash container.
